If the player does not have Composite (RCA) or HDMI input then it is not going to work with the RPi. Most players don't have inputs.
Something like this maybe:

or wait for the official RPi screen to be released.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.

You can get a Composite (RCA) monitor for about the cost of a RPi, but it will be poor quality low resolution, jittery hard to read text etc.
I would suggest you borrow a composite monitor or old TV and try it out before your buy one.
